How to wear Black during Summer

Wearing black during summer is not something I tend to do often. In Miami, the heat is insane and well, black doesn’t help. However, I read online while researching summer trends that black was going to be an ‘it’ color for the season. At the beginning, I thought it was crazy, then I kind of started thinking ways I could wear it. Maybe, just maybe, it didn’t have to be an all black long sleeve outfit. The Zara pants are just a great, cool – and by cool I mean not hot – way to wear the color without suffocating. My first thought, was to wear a black and white outfit, because of course those are my favorites. The blouse is from Tobi and it has become one of my favorites.

The whole look is perfect for a day out, whether you are going shopping, to a friends house, or just out for lunch. It is comfortable, and of course trendy. Did I mention also super affordable? With the exception of the shoes, which are the key piece to bring color to a black and white outfit. The shoes are Dolce & Gabbana, and along with the handbag are my current obsession. I create my outfits around them. My mom asked me the other day if I had forgotten about the rest of the shoes in my closet. But hey! That’s how I roll, from obsession to obsession.

Una de las cosas que nunca imaginé hacer es usar negro en el verano. Siempre he sido de las que piensa que el negro y lo colores oscuros son mas del invierno. Hace meses leí en internet, mientras investigaba sobre las tendencias del verano, que el negro seria una de ellas. La verdad pensé que era una locura, pero poco a poco la idea se fue sentando en mi cabeza. Entonces decidí retarme y pensar maneras de como incorporar el color en mis outfits del verano. Estos pantalones de Zara son una opción excelente; no solo por que son negros jaja pero por lo cómodos! En vez de usar un outfit todo negro e imaginarme que me derrito, opté por un outfit blanco y negro, y además son mis favoritos.

El look es perfecto para cualquier ocasión. Ya sea un almuerzo, una salida con amigas, y hasta para ir de compras. Es cómodo y ademas muy a la moda. Les mencioné que ademas las piezas son super económicas? Con la excepción de los zapatos, que aunque los compre en rebaja, son Dolce & Gabbana. Pero era el toque de color que el outfit necesitaba. Junto con la cartera son mi obsesión, no paro de usarlos. Mi mama me preguntó el otro día que si me había olvidado de los demás zapatos que tengo en el closet jaja! Pero así soy, voy de obsesión en obsesión.

¿Alguien cómo yo por aquí? Dejen abajo en la cajita de comentarios su obsesión actual!

XOXO, Ana Cristina Mariño
